این فصل بسیار بسیار زیباست . به خوبی بر روی شخصیت های سفید برفی و شاهزاده چارمینگ و اما کار شده است . شخصیت مورد علاقه ی من در کل هفت فصل این سریال پوست چروکین است. هورویتز و کیستیتس قطعا میراثی شگفت انگیز برای شبکه ی ( ای بی سی ) خلق کرده است . واقعا علی است
The larger problem, though, is that unless you're deeply invested in the fairy tale characters and seeing the variations on their familiar backstories--seeing, for instance, that Snow and Charming had a very different first meeting than the one we know about--then most of the story and character work is flat, despite a cast of likable, game actors.
To draw out the story by looping it through subplots and minidramas runs the risk of turning it into a fairy-tale soap opera--when what we really want to know is whether the tragic Snow White or the lonely Emma can in the end live happily ever after.
THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING SHOW EVER its a life changing show, i disagree with the point that the acting is not good OH COME ON i guarantee u that the acting done by Robert Carlyle Jennifer Morrison Lana PARRILLA Robbie Kay Rebecca madder and etc is unbelievable MOST PEOPLE SAY THAT THE FIRST 3 OR 4 SEASONS WERE GOOD but i say each and every season is a an amazing one, the dialogues are so good and once upon a time is highly rated show, its a very addicting one and not only the creators have made this show about fairy tales they have created a whole new and a differnet story for each of the fairy tale character
Confusing and Toothless
The show is interesting, its a twist on classic fairy tail stories with new over arching plots thrown in. Seeing how stories get combined, different fairy-tale characters turn out to be the same person and how the drama becomes more moral grey then the original Disney story is really interesting to watch. But the main problem with the show is all drama and audience relation is lost when too many big supernatural elements get thrown in. Every season ends with the heroes having to dig deep down and believe in themselves after finding some rare magical thing needed to stop some big supernatural plague that only been briefly explained is really bad. Because this is a retelling of a fairy tale and its already been explained in the show that good-guys always win. The audience can safely assume that the problem will be resolved adding to drama. then because the show is about magical stuff and our heroes digging down within themselves. The audience has no grasp of what they are going thru and the show makes no attempt to make us feel it.
Too be honest, although this show seems to bring in good reviews, it is a mainstream fanfiction displayed on television. Not to dis fanfiction but there's a reason it's not simply fiction, it typically amateuristic and gives training wheels to those not too serious or just starting out, it should not be put on television. It's fairly unoriginal and crams nostalgic characters into modern ordeals to attract fairytale fanatics. In the latest episode, a new character has been put in from a very recent film, I'd imagine it would butcher the original film and creating a backstory for this character as the show does would be an insult to the original writers considering this movie came out so recently. Overall, it's entertaining to some but should not be considered a "serious" show.
It's not absolutely terrible, but I'd hesitate to call it good.
The thing I thought was the absolute funniest was how the wicked stepmother gave them worst fate she could imagine, and that was living in a quaint upper-middle class town in Maine. There are a lot of times where the progression of the story just doesn't make sense, and requires a very generous suspension of disbelief. Other times, the protagonist makes unethical decisions and the show paints it as a "noble" thing to do.
I could see how people would enjoy this show if they're enamored with the idea of larger-than-life romance, but it falls short in worthwhile content.
